TOP REVIEWS FROM HOW COMPUTERS WORK
Very good course as an introduction to computing. Could stand to be more challenging, but the material is certainly easy enough for a true beginner.
Very fundamental Computer Science terminology and concepts. Some lessons had repeat information.
Clear and concise introduction about how computers work. I really liked the focus on abstraction and security.
It is awesome and wonderful experience.
and in fact in-depth learning and knowledge of the courses/topics
Thankful to all the staff/members of Coursera and PSMO...
About the Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Specialization
This specialisation covers topics ranging from basic computing principles to the mathematical foundations required for computer science.
